use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\UpgradeDataInterface;

class UpgradeData implements UpgradeDataInterface
     * @var CustomerSetupFactory
    protected $customerSetupFactory;

     * @var AttributeSetFactory
    private $attributeSetFactory;

     * @param CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory
     * @param AttributeSetFactory $attributeSetFactory
    public function __construct(
        CustomerSetupFactory $customerSetupFactory,
        AttributeSetFactory $attributeSetFactory
    ) {
        $this->customerSetupFactory = $customerSetupFactory;

        /** @var CustomerSetup $customerSetup */
        $customerSetup = $this->customerSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);
        $customerEntity = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getEntityType('customer');
        $attributeSetId = $customerEntity->getDefaultAttributeSetId();
        /** @var $attributeSet AttributeSet */
        $attributeSet = $this->attributeSetFactory->create();
        $attributeGroupId = $attributeSet->getDefaultGroupId($attributeSetId);

        $attributeCode = "type_of_activity";

            'is_searchable_in_grid' => false,


        $attribute = $customerSetup->getEavConfig()->getAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, $attributeCode)
                'attribute_set_id' => $attributeSetId,
                'attribute_group_id' => $attributeGroupId,
                'used_in_forms' =>  ['adminhtml_customer', 'customer_account_create', 'customer_account_edit']

        $attributeCode1 = "social_reason";
        $customerSetup->addAttribute(Customer::ENTITY, $attributeCode1, [

  • Can you provide the code you used to create the attributes? – Dominic Xigen Jul 10 at 19:36

Your setup file looks good

Take a look at the following extension



<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <update handle="customer_account"/>
        <referenceContainer name="content">
            <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Form\Edit" name="customer_edit" template="Xigen_CC::form/edit.phtml" cacheable="false">
                <container name="form.additional.info" as="form_additional_info"/>
                <block class="Magento\Customer\Block\Form\Edit" name="email_cc" template="Xigen_CC::form/email_cc.phtml"/>



$emailCc = $block->getCustomer()->getCustomAttribute('email_cc');
$customerEmailCC = $emailCc ? $emailCc->getValue() : null;
<fieldset class="fieldset create account" >
    <legend class="legend">
        <span><?=$block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Email Copy To'))?></span>
    <div class="field email_cc">
        <label for="email_cc" class="label"><span><?=$block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Email Address (Comma separated)'));?></span></label>
        <div class="control">
            <input id="email_cc" class="input-text" name="email_cc" value="<?=$block->escapeHtmlAttr($customerEmailCC);?>" title="<?=$block->escapeHtmlAttr(__('Email Copy To'));?>" type="text" autocomplete="off" />
